Two judges scored each of the photographs – final scores were tallied by averaging the total given by each judge. The top three photos had the highest calculated scores in each category. All of the photos entered were very good – both judges repeatedly stated how difficult it was to judge due to the talent of these young people.
We gave ribbons a little differently this year than we have in the past. As we are trying to model our competition a little more closely after the D9 contest we awarded ribbons based on the same point system that D9 uses. To award ribbons we looked at the calculated (averaged) score and the scale listed on the bottom of the score sheet – this determined the color ribbon each photo received.
